Milwaukee Brewers DFS SPIN

Lorenzo Cain ripped a solo home run in the eighth inning and a three-run shot in the 10th of the Brewers' win over the Cubs on Wednesday. Cain was making his first start in four days after battling an oblique issue, and he let his presence be felt right away. It was a scoreless tie going into the eighth inning as Brandon Woodruff and Kyle Hendricks were locked into a pitcher's duel, but Cain untied it with a leadoff blast off Alec Mills. He untied things again in the 10th with a long ball which just reached the basket in center field at Wrigley Field off of Brandon Workman. Cain was batting leadoff in this game after hitting sixth in his other two starts.

Yadi also walked and scored an additional run in the ninth. The 38-year-old has caught all but two innings for the Cards so far and started this one even with it being a day game after a night game.
